For several years Mark and Lyn Viney yearned to move to Torbay. They were so keen to live in Paignton orTorquay that for the last three years, they had visited the Bay twice every month in the summertime and monthly in the winter.
When Jon Williams of Williams Hedge showed Mark and Lyn around the house they knew they had found their perfect home. Having agreed to buy the house, they set about preparing to move. Everything went to plan and they have now moved into their wonderful new home.
Matthew Clarke, who coincidentally is the chairman of the Paignton BID added, ‘We are delighted that Mark and Lyn have settled in so well and it is fantastic to hear such good things being said about the town and the efforts of the local traders’.

Here are Williams Hedge top tips:
1. Remember the basics.Taking care of needed maintenance and repairs is obligatory in any season. A thorough cleaning and getting rid of clutter are equally essential. And tidying up the garden and touching up the exterior appearance to improve the curb appeal also can make the difference between deal or no deal.
In a slow market, nothing counts more than pricing competitively.
2. Warm and cosy.
Home staging -- techniques used to make your house look bigger, brighter, warmer and more appealing -- takes on a new focus in winter. To convey a cosy impression in winter, it may well pay you to turn up the thermostat and have a fire roaring especially if it is an open fire or woodburner. It will give you a definite edge over the many vacant, unwelcoming and cold homes on the market.
"If you have a vacant house in winter with the heat turned down or off, chances are someone will make a very low offer"
4. Good lighting is essential.
Your home may appear darker due to less daylight. Fight the gloom. Turn on all the lights possible for visitors - this is no time to worry about the electric bill. Open blinds, curtains and remove nets to let natural light pour in. Make sure to clean any windows to maximise light.
We will encourage showings during high-daylight hours. Showing after work in the dark isn't a great idea. However if light is failing ensure all lamps are working and add a timer control if necessary. Remember buyers will still have a drive by - make sure outside lights are all in working order.
Generally speaking buyers at this time of year are more committed, there are less viewers "just taking a look around". Our generally mild climate means that sales are more consistent all year round. It is often sellers perception that determines when they market not our actual business levels. December is the month when the fewest sales take place but this is due to the holiday period not the weather and season.
We hope our tips are of some help. For further information call Mark or Jon on 01803 554322
